I have seen the two RKTs in that photo captioned as Wendorff, Helmut & Kling, Heinrich.

The Luftwaffe RKT at the top of the page is Theo Weissenberger.

Hello,

The KC-holder on page 538 in the middle is Werner Pötschke. (group LSSAH)
The Hstuf on page 540 is Walter Schmidt.

It's really Erich Rudorffer painted in this portrait ?
I can't recognize him.

Id: Without any doubt Wilhelm-Ferdinand "Wutz" Galland, the brother
of Adolf Galland.

NOT Rudorffer, it's WILHELM-FERDINAND GALLAND. Compare with the pic shown here: http://www.wehrmacht-awards.com/forums/ ... ?p=6032766

Hi von Thoma

I would say that the man in the portrait is not Rudorffer. It really does look like F.W. Galland.
